Please help with this poster. I found this in Hawaii about 10 years ago, at a Army-Navy store in Hilo. It took me 4 years to get the guy to sell it to me. I have called the Hall of Fame, MLB and they could not tell me anything, about it. I have looked all over the web, and no luck. Just found this place, and maybe I can get some help here.I know that it is dated 6-15-1950 and that it is a USMC recruiting poster, that is all I can find out. I did find a picture of Ted, or Mr. Williams to you yankee fan's @ Ted Williams,with the poster in the background. That is the only one I have ever seen. I have no idea of the value. So if anyone out in space can help with any info, how many were made, value.or anything I would be so thankful. I don't live in Hi., Alaska is my home come on up and check us out.

    Don't have any info about your wonderful poster, but it would look great framed with a nice copy of the Ted Williams photo next to it.

    GREAT poster, not one that I have seen before.

    It may have been short lived/ quickly canceled due to the beginning of the Korean War with the Invasion of S. Korea on 25 JUN 1950. I would bet the USMC recruiting campaign changed pretty dramatically after the Invasion.

    Ted Williams was recalled to active duty and served as a combat pilot in Korea.

    I'm doing some research on Ted's time in the Marine Corps and was wondering if I could exchange emails with you about this poster, it's history, and your history with it. Thanks - Andy (

    Mr. Williams, born in 1918, was a fighter pilot with the Suwons Airbase in Korea, K-13 unit. He passed away in Florida in 2002. Thomas.

    Author Bill Nowlin has a picture of Ted standing with this poster in his "Ted Williams At War" book. The picture is credited from The Sporting News if that helps you any.
